long time since barack obama had a debate, it's been four years. and the last four years since he last left the stage with john mccain in october of 2008, there's almost no one whose argued with him almost under any circumstance. he's had four years of yes men, nodding their head and agreeing with everything he says. you get up on that stage and you're rusty to begin with and then you have someone who is up there who is right in your face. >> rose: nobody goes into the oval office and says mr. president you got it wrong. >> they do -- >> they do what? >> you could feel it. it's a lot easier in debate to say mitt that's the stupidest answer you ever heard you sound like a rich idiot. it's hard to say mr. president you put me to sleep with that boring answer. as an old campaign hack it read to me a very weak debate threat. it's interesting to think about what their internal staff is going to be. first of all they're going to give biden a bayonet next week to carve ryan up. i don't think biden is good at it. we could have an over reaction biden show. second, there's one point and i agree

vote helped get president obama into the white house four years ago. he is still likely to win much of their vote, but gone is the message of hope and change. the american dream has been a part of this election, because many people fear that it's under threat. no more slogans on campuses like this one where students worry they will be worse off than their parents. do you worry about being worse off? >> yes, almost every day. i am fearful that i might not get a job so i might be in debt all my life. >> the university is still seen a good -- as a good investment, because non graduates are fare even worse. but many students are having to lower their financial expectations. >> we still have it in our mind we will be better off than our parents. but i also think that there is an understanding that we may have to redefine what it means to be better off. >> at least he can take comfort in the fact he never has to study from these books again. bbc news, philadelphia. >> let's catch up on the aaron.ss news wit haar the european central bank is the place to be looking today. >> the big interest

advisors made the point that president obama in his view had departed from 70 years of bipartisan agreement, an agreement in which you would sort of focus on your allies first and not on engaging your adversaries. what i think was missing from the speech was any direct engagement with the question of the bush years and the bush doctrine. >> rose: we conclude with lisa randall, she is a theoretical physicist at harvard talking about new discoveries based on the higgs boson theory. >> one of the things that was so interesting about this discovery is it didn't have to look like this. there are other types of particles, other sectors that can make the higgs megaisim in work. the higgs boson is in some sense the simpleest possibility but it could be more complicated and that's one of the reasons that the experiments are now studying in detail the properties of the higgs boson, to find out is it really the simplest example that implement this is mechanism or is it something richer and deeper that sheds light on what goes beyond? >> rose: politics, foreign policy, and physics when we continue. , w

unemployment and economic crisis at the kitchen table and spend his energy and passion for two years fighting for obama care instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. >> i have my own plans, not the same as simpson-bowles but in my view the president should have grabbed it if he wanted to make adjustments take it, go to congress and fight it. >> that's what we have done, make adjustments and putting it before congress right now, $4 trillion plan. >> you have been president four years, you have been president four years, you said you would cut the deficit in half, we still have trillion dollars deficits, a we will be have a trillion-dollar deficit each of the four years if you are reelected we will get to a $20 trillion debt. >> rose: it will be seen if romney can keep up the momentum. we begin this evening with analysis of chris matthews of msnbc, welcome. >> thank you, charlie. >> rose: as you watched the debate last night, what was your reaction to what you were seeing, b, why do you think it was that way, and, c, where are we going from here? >> well, i think governor romney kn

economy in my opinion is still the same as it was four years ago. >>> what's effective about that is that what governor romney has to do is persuade people who voted for president obama that they shouldn't vote for him again. if the attack is strong on his competence or strong on some facet of his leadership, the danger is people hunker down and defend their original vote. this situates the voter where the voter is right now, it says, "we license you to reject the incumbent." it's an ad that says, "let's make this a referendum. >> what about the pro-obama ad? what's the most effective ad they've run that is believable? >> i think the most effective ad that they have is on the air right now. it's capturing a small segment of the statement that governor romney made behind closed doors, not realized he was being taped, about the 47%. and it puts pictures of people who fall into that 47% on the screen and basically suggests that governor romney doesn't want to represent you and you and you. >>> mitt romney attacked 47% of americans who pay no income tax, including veterans, elderly, the disab

very similar to the view he had when he ran four years ago, a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle down government would work. that's not the right answer for america. >> romney kept attacking o mode instructions. obama some times had trouble getting a word in. many u.s. media analysts say romney had a belttter performan. the candidates have two more debates they have five weeks to win over undecided voters. turkish forces have fired artillery shells across the border into syria. they're retaliating for syrian mortars that landed in southern turkey. it killed five people including a woman and her three children. the mortar landed in the turkish town of akcakale. they have warned of prompt action if their security was threatened again. turkey has provided support for the opposition free syrian army and the turkish military has been building up tanks. turkey has provided support for the opposition for syrian army and turkish military commanders have been building up their forces and deploying tanks along the border. >>> u.s. secreta

up the money by 2016. if what i think is going to happen happens and president obama wins, i think that too will break the logjam for a different reason. as senator mcconnell says their number one goal for the last four years has been denying him a second term. as soon as he gets that, they can't deny him a third term. he can't have one anyway. so i think you will see, i will just make a prediction. i think in the lame duck session they will avoid the fiscal cliff, they will reach an agreement-- . >> rose: by extending it, by some kind of an extension or by making a deal. >> they'll either make a deal or they will have a short extension which makes it clear this is not another year, i predict that you will get a budget deal early next year f not in this lame duck session. and i think you'll see them start to work together. it is going to be a different world. >> rose: because the election will have that kind of consequence. >> absolutely. >> one of romney's top foreign policy advisors said the other day that obama has made the united states look impo nent the world. dot facts bear

one-year cycle of reading the torah and the beginning of the next, starting all over. >>> welcome. i'm bob abernethy. it's good to have you with us. >>> president obama and governor mitt romney squared off in their first presidential debate wednesday. earlier in the week, thousands of conservative christians gathered in philadelphia to pray for the future of the country. organizers said the rally was not political, although same-sex marriage and abortion were widely denounced. they also called for 40 days of prayer leading up to the election. >>> meanwhile, this weekend, a conservative christian group is urging pastors to challenge federal law by endorsing political candidates from the pulpit. those who do so risk losing their churches' tax-exempt status. according to a recent survey by the christian polling organization lifeway, 87% of pastors believe pastors should refrain from making political endorsements. the survey included both evangelical and mainline clergy. >>> the supreme court opened its new term on monday and a majority of the justices -- six of the nine -- attended the an

raises some domestic issues, . "in recent years, president obama has allowed our leadership to atrophy. our economy is stuck in a recovery that is clearly deserves the name. our national debt has risen to record levels. our military tested by a decade of war is facing cuts based to that -- thanks to the budgetary games played by the white house. our values have been misunderstood by a president who thinks that weakness will win favor with our adversaries. by failing to maintain the elements of our influence and by stepping away from our allies, president obama has heightened the prospect of conflict and instability. he does not understand that an american policy that lets result can provoke a precedent and encouraged this order." two paris. let me take them one at a time. in the first paragraph, he speaks to the way he sees the economic conditions in its country. what did mitt romney say in that first paragraph that you disagree with, including the budgetary games the white house has played? what he said on the domestic front that you disagree with? anything? >> i am disagreed with eve

voters at 46%, obama's lowest mark in the people in over a year. on monday, romney delivered a speech attacking president obama's form policy, the subject of their next debate in one week. >> i know the president hopes for a safer, freer, and more prosperous middle east, allied with us. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. we cannot support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. when our defense spending is being deeply cut, when we have no trade agenda to speak of. and the perception of our strategy is now one of partnership, but of passivity. >> the presidential candidate last of it will be on foreign policy. mitt romney was speaking at the virginia military institute. campaign later that day in san francisco, president obama said romney is wrong to oppose the winding down of the iraq war. >> governor romney has a different view. he said it is tragic to end the war in iraq. he doubled down that believe in a speech today, saying it was a mistake. i disagree. bringing our troops home was the right thing to do.

to create jobs? >> president obama would like us to ignore what is happening is past four years. granted, he came into a tough situation, but we have to consider that during the last 43 months we have had more than 8% unemployment. it is the only time in this nation's history that we have had a president that has presided even over three years of over 8% unemployment. the fact is, those 43 months of over 8% unemployment during president obama's term is four months more than all of the months of over 8% unemployment from 1948 until president obama's inauguration. he talks about recovery, all the new jobs. the fact is, in the downturn, 60% of the jobs lost were mid skill and mid paying jobs, and only 20% of the new jobs during the so-called recovery are in that category. most of the jobs are low-paying jobs, these new jobs he brags about are in retail sales and food preparation. there are things that have been proven in our history to work. we could have put in place, and it needs to be put in immediately, it works progress administration kind of program where we are investing in

a tree to be here. i am one of your most loyal fans. last year, we had a blockbuster case with the court deciding the constitutionality of president obama's health care law. to many, the decision was a surprise. the chief justice had a majority to basically find the act constitutional under the government cost taxing powers. many were surprised, many expected the court to rule health care unconstitutional. so i think to most of us it was gratifying position, but at the same time, there were elements that more recent, particularly, language in the opinion that essentially said this chief justice, along with a majority, would have found the act unconstitutional under the commerce clause. why that is important is because so much of the foundation of progressive reform in this country, going back to the new deal, is based on the commerce clause. so there are ominous signs for the future, and we have no idea what will happen, but obviously, this was a very smart move by the chief justice. he essentially took an issue of the supreme court out of the election. as many have said, he preser
